Whose books managed to hold off time by evolving from book to book? What writer was able to find a new way to tell a new story? I am most reminded here of Stewart O'Nan and Ian McEwan who didn't allow themselves to tell similar stories from book to book. Kate Atkinson with LIFE AFTER LIFE is doing something completely original and not at all like the Jackson Brodie quartet.
I am sure there are more crime fiction writers who have done similarly. Perhaps Michael Kortya and Charlie Huston?
Who comes to mind for you? Who manages to stay fresh?
